Johnson & Johnson Recall List: Tylenol, Benadryl, Motrin, Rolaids, More

by Leigh Ann Otte, managing editor

Heard about the Johnson & Johnson recall? News came out today that they’ve expanded it. Most of the stories I’ve seen don’t link to the list of recalled products, so we thought we’d post a quick link. Here ya go.

The site mentions specific lots of Tylenol, Motrin, Benadryl, Rolaids, Simply Sleep and St. Joseph. The complaint is, some of these medicines have a musty odor and have caused a small number of people to experience fun stuff like nausea or diarrhea.

The FDA says:

Based on this investigation, [the Johnson & Johnson division] McNeil Consumer Healthcare has determined that the reported uncharacteristic smell is caused by the presence of trace amounts of a chemical called 2,4,6-tribromoanisole (TBA). This can result from the breakdown of a chemical that is sometimes applied to wood that is used to build wood pallets that transport and store product packaging materials.
